CONNECTICUT SPRING & STAMPING TO FEATURE TIGHT TOLERANCE SPRINGS AND STAMPING CAPABILITIES AT MD&M West

Visit Booth #1425 to see precision components for handheld medical devices

Farmington, CT - Connecticut Spring & Stamping (CSS), a manufacturer of precision parts for the medical, aerospace, firearms and defense industries worldwide, announces that it will showcase its expertise in producing precision medical product components for medical device OEMs, including springs and progressive stampings, at MD&M West from February 12-14, 2013, to be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Visit CSS at booth # 1425.


CSS has a large and expanding business supplying medical device OEMs with tight tolerance springs and metal stampings used in minimally invasive handheld surgical devices, endoscopic clip appliers, suturing devices, and staple removers. They offer prototyping and complete new product development services, specializing in collaborating with customers to optimize their design objectives.

The company offers low volume, short-run spring manufacturing, as well as higher volume production and warehousing. Springs are produced according to customer specifications, and are manufactured from a wide range of flat stock and round wires, ranging from 002-inch to .350-inch in diameter. With an expertise in part and tooling design, CSS develops sophisticated tooling to produce extremely tight stack tolerances, less than a thousandth of an inch. Critical CNC machined features may also be added to complicated stampings in the company's CNC department.

CSS will also showcase their metal stamping expertise in the medical device arena. Drive channels, jaws, surgical staples, and titanium clips are just of few of the many components CSS has produced for assemblies used in handheld devices. CSS capabilities include prototyping and high speed progressive die stamping from 30-300 tons, in-die tapping, reel to reel processes, modular die options, and short run stamping.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
